TPP Club Issues Resolved

This morning, the GHIN development team deployed several resolutions to issues that clubs were experiencing while using TPP Club. Our team has been working extremely hard these past months to learn the complexities of TPP Club and create a more stable and responsive environment.

Below are the items that were addressed in this release.

  • Removed the Advanced button from the shaft label and address label reports. The advanced features functionality will be addressed in a future release.
  • Resolved the issue when running a 9-hole event and entering player HBH scores, the Net HBH Report did not properly calculate the hole handicaps for the net scores.
  • Resolved the issue when running the Team HBH – Gross or Net Scoring Report, the report produced a “0” for each team hole score when entering team HBH, and did not display a team hole score, if the scores were entered player HBH.
  • Resolved the issue on standard template scorecards (ex. Laser Type 4) or one that has been customized, where the Team Course Handicap did not display in the Team Hcp field of the card.
  • Resolved the issue when the default cart/caddie assignment in administration, preferences was set to “Cart” and players were added through the club list, the players got set as cart for the tournament, but were set as “Walk” in the master player list.
  • Resolved the error when running a scoring report when the back-9 is scored (HBH) for a 9-hole round.
  • Resolved the messaging when removing a player from the waitlist. Message now reads: Would you like to remove the selected players from the waiting list/pending queue?
  • Resolved the labeling issue when creating matches for a match play event. When you get to the Final Match the buttons at the bottom are listed “Previous”, “Finish” and “Cancel”.  Now when you are on the Final Match, if you click “Previous” to go back to the Semi Final Round, then continue to the Semi Final round, the buttons say “Previous”, “Next” and “Cancel”.
  • Resolved the server error received when copying shotgun group assignments from another round when working in a Round Robin Team Event.

Critical TPP Updates

GHIN needs to apply critical Windows updates to the server which houses TPP Association and Club. We would like to perform the update tomorrow morning, Wednesday, February 5 starting at 2:00 am ET. We anticipate this may take up to three hours. The impact to golfers and the association will be no access to any TPP sites during the update time.

If you have any concerns about the timing of this because of tournament registration or an event, please email Fran Nee fnee@usga.org immediately so that we can reschedule this task.
